photo of frame samples Back from Italy!

I'm back from spending a fantastic September in Italy! I painted about 25 oil painting sketches on location in various hill towns and along the south eastern coast near Peschici. While in Peschici I joined a group of painters from California, Tennessee, Holland and Italy. We painted in and around the white washed town and also the nearby landscapes, seascapes and villages

Most of our time was spent in Tuscany where we hosted a plein air workshop and tour to locations like Florence, Cortona, Siena, Montepulciano and Pienze. To find out more and to see other plein air workshops visit Plein Air Liaison. During the workshop we stayed at the villa Tenuta Brancoleta which was centrally located to all our hilltop towns. They served delicious breakfasts and amazing muticourse dinners.
